Hey guys i just made a new home for my crawfish named CrawDad. I caught him in the ditch behind my house. His home is a bowl with plants(fake of course) and he has a cave made of coral and rock which sticks halfway above the water so he can come out sometimes.

Here are some pics cause i thought you guys might be interested.:ssmile:

This is CrawDad's Bowl.

Awesome, I've heard they sometimes eat snails. He may come in handy if you ever get an invasion of MTS(maylasian trumpet snails). But I'm not 100% sure about that.

Also, what do you feed him? And be sure to keep up on water changes, like 30%-40% every other day.

I enjoyed keeping crayfish when I had a spare tank.
I enjoyed watching them molt into a different color.
Great fun! lol
